About 4 weeks ago i noticed a small red oval shaped mark on (nelle) my dogs leg. It looked almost like a burn mark. Initially i thought it might be from Kaner dragging her across the carpet causing a rug burn. When they play tug of war and nelle gets tired she will just lay down but not let go so he will slide her across the room sometimes.
After a week it started getting larger. We had a vet apt for something else so i asked about it. Vet said it looked like histiocytoma. He took a sample and looked at it while we waited. He said it might go away and it might need to be removed. He suggested we give it a few weeks before making a decision.
Today i noticed that its raised quite a bit and larger. Its about 1" at its widest point. Its raised nearly 1/8" in the center. It looks terrible.
Any advice on how long we should wait before getting this removed? Obviously i would like to avoid her having surgery for something that might go away on its own and the apx $500.00 vet bill isn't something im looking forward to. But...i don't want to keep waiting and have it continue to get larger or cause her more problems. Thanks.
